As announced by both clubs vier their social channels, Moroccan midfielder Oussama Targhalline (20) has joined Ligue 2 side Le Havre after being allowed to leave Marseille on a free transfer – the 20-year old cut short a loan at Turkish side Alanyaspor to return to France.
Sebastien Denis from Foot Mercato reported earlier that the youngster was in discussions to originally break off a loan agreement with Alanyaspor in order to be loaned back to Ligue 2 – Targhalline has now however terminated his contract with the Olympians before moving to Le Havre on a free transfer. The new Havre AC player said the following on his move via the Ligue 2 club’s website:
“I was interested, I spoke about it with my agents, and they did everything to find an agreement with Marseille, even if at the beginning it was a bit complicated. My interest is to play, that’s why I went to Turkey, to play, but it didn’t go well there. Now I have a definitive transfer to Le Havre, I have a project. Now it’s up to me to do well, to prove it.”
The midfielder only made eight appearances and registered two assists earlier this seasons whilst on loan with the Turkish side, not appearing since September in the Super Lïg. He returns to France hoping for more game time in Ligue 2, with Le Havre currently topping the division five points ahead of Girondins de Bordeaux – the Moroccan will wear the number 5 shirt for his new club.
